Admin approving account?

Hey everyone... so, I just made an account for my young neighbor friend who is an avid fishkeeper (got me into the hobby). When I access his account in an attempt to get it going so he can post, it says that a leader/admin has to approve his account first. What does this mean? This didn't happen when I made my account?

He is very excited to join and meet everyone as well as share pictures of his many, many fish, but he sadly can't yet.

Note to any admins: If you could review his account and approve it to resolve this, the account is Frostclaw

He'll be very happy to meet you too, I'm sure
SOmething did go odd in the process of making the account, it says 18. That shouldn't be the problem =/

Heres a pic of the notification:


It's just a bit confusing lol

Did you make it on the same computer or something as your account? That may be why.

Ah, that I did. Could that be the problem? I was doing it from home because of distancing.

I think so since I remember reading somewhere that if you have more than one account, you have to give a reason so they can approve it(cuz, ya know, why would one person have multiple accounts).

Hi, I think if you have two accounts running on the same IP address, admin needs to approve it. It's in the forum rules. Don't worry, this will get sorted!

Hi, as mentioned above if you registered the account from your own computer that’s why it's waiting for admin approval, only Mike can do that & I’m sure he will when he sees this.
